Music as a 'Family Value'

« previous episode | next episode »

Saturday, September 14, 2013

On this edition of All Ears: how a family that plays together stays together.

A few years back, "family values" was a popular catch phrase that spoke to religious and socially conservative thought. But host Terrance McKnight explores the phrase in a different context: as the primary value that forged potent and unexpected relationships.

From Johannes Brahms's convivial relationship with the Schumann family, to Art Tatum's intimate relationship with Alma Scott's family, this week's show is all about family with music at its core.
